The Fanning sisters may have exited Nick CassavetesMy Sister’s Keeper, but the New Line drama is still moving full steam ahead.

Variety reports that Abigail Breslin has agreed to join the cast, stepping in after Elle and Dakota Fanning left the project. According to the report, Dakota “balked at a request that she shave her head for the role”; her departure prompted Elle to withdraw as well. Breslin will take over for Elle, and Sofia Vassilieva is “near a deal” to replace the elder Fanning. From the article:

Breslin, who was Oscar-nominated for “Little Miss Sunshine,” will take over the role of a young girl who sues for emancipation from parents who conceived her as a genetic match so she could prolong the life of her ailing older sister. Vassilieva (“Medium”) would play the older sister.

The film, adapted from Jodi Picoult’s novel, also stars Cameron Diaz, Alec Baldwin, and Joan Cusack. Production is scheduled to begin next month.
